New Teacher group for OHM BOCES region
"Reading the Federalist Papers” Instructor: David Frisk, Ph.D., Resident Fellow, AHI Contact the Alexander Hamilton Institute in Clinton to register In this class, we will carefully study a combination of the most important Federalist Papers and the ones that seem most relevant today. Please read the Federalist Papers slowly and with care. Each week, I will e-mail you a glossary that explains the meanings of words and phrases that, due to differences in 18th century vocabulary and style, may be unclear. The additional readings by other authors, which will be sent in a timely manner each week, are required as well. They explain the author's views on that part of The Federalist and its themes. Sometimes they also comment on whether, and how, Publius's analysis remains valid in our political world today. The question of current validity will be also included to an extent in my short lectures, and I hope it will be a significant part of our discussion. We are using the Dover Thrift Edition of the Federalist Papers. (If you wish to use another edition, that's fine-but allow for the fact that items we discuss may well have a different page number.) Please bring the Federalist Papers-and, if possible, printouts

Each module contains a critically reflexive learning checkpoint and includes accompanying resource documents. There is a guided notes action plan document that can be completed with each module. There is also a dialogue facilitation document for self-processing or group-processing. Educators who complete the professional learning course receive a DEI MATTERS certificate of completion. Module topics include: (1) Building a DEI community; (2) DEI Literacy: Key terms and concepts; (3) Social identities and education; (4) Microaggressions, bias and education; (5) A DEI educational framework: Culturally-responsive sustainable education; (6) Building an inclusive classroom; (7) Anti-racist education (8) Anti-classist education; (9) DEI dialogic pedagogy skills for dialogues across difference; (10) Allyship, coalition building, and solidarity in education.
